Martin Brundle's gridwalk interview with MGK before F1 Brazilian GP dubbed the 'weirdest' he's ever done

Martin Brundle's gridwalk interview with music star Machine Gun Kelly has been dubbed the 'weirdest' he's ever done before the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Brundle's gridwalk sees him interview F1 drivers, team crew and, really, anyone else who is present on the grid and willing to have a chat.
Before the race in Sao Paulo, the former F1 driver and current co-commentator bumped into MGK - and what followed was, at least in an interviewing context, completely bizarre.
You can watch the clip below.

When approached by Brundle, MGK said he was 'honoured' to be at the track, before appearing to pick at the poppy on Brundle's shirt.
After being told that it was indeed a poppy, Brundle asked the musician about his career.
MGK replied: "My career. I don't think about my career. I don't think."
Brundle then brought up how there is a 'synergy' between the music business and the motorsport business, but MGK didn't appear to be listening too closely.
Then, unprompted, the 33-year-old asked: "Can you give me your best air guitar?"
The most awkward moment when MGK asked Brundle to perform an 'air guitar/piano collaboration' - but given the commentator's more pressing concerns to get down the grid as the race timer ticked down, he couldn't agree to his request.
MGK then walked away, pointing a thumbs down towards the camera as he went on his way.
And Brundle summed up the comical interview by joking: "I don't think I'll be on his Christmas card list."
F1 content creator Matt Gallagher summed up the thoughts of many viewers when he said: "That might be the weirdest Martin Brundle interview yet."
The chaos of that interview seemed to spread to the track at the Brazilian Grand Prix, with a multi-car collision at the first corner retiring both Kevin Magnussen and Alex Albon and bringing out the red flag to proceedings.
